A Mile a Day for 30-ish Days: What I Learned

by Angela on September 20, 2020

I decided to do a mile-a-day for 30 days after following an influencer, Magen Reaves, who was posting about her own commitment to walk a mile a day for 30 days. I watched on her stories as more and more started tagging her about joining the movement, literal movement, and thought why not? By this […]

Sweet Dreams are Made of These

by Angela on September 9, 2020

I think it’s a well known fact that sleep is so important to our health. Adults should be getting 7+ hours of good quality sleep per night, yet over 30% of adults in the United States are suffering from short sleep duration (CDC statistic). Here are some of my favorite products (or ones recommended to […]

Healthy Banana Mini Muffins

by Angela on August 27, 2020

Sugar-free, oil-free, whole wheat banana muffins that are kid-approved? I’ve got you covered! I took a muffin recipe and made some healthy substitutions that got the thumbs up from both of my kids. So what substitutes did I make to give this traditional favorite a healthier edge? Whole wheat flour instead of white flour – […]

Grilled Ranch Chicken Kabobs

by Angela on August 4, 2020

This is hands down the easiest, and most delicious chicken skewer recipe I have found. No overnight marinating is necessary so I can choose to make it last minute and still have dinner on the table at a reasonable time. And something about the ranch dressing makes the chicken tender and juicy. Grilling season is […]

Chia Seed Pudding

by Angela on July 13, 2020

One of the easiest breakfasts I make on the regular is chia seed pudding. 3 simple ingredients, I can make the morning of and let sit for a bit, or I can meal prep and make enough for a few days. While my basic recipe is actually my favorite, I changed it up recently to […]

Here Comes the Sun

by Angela on June 29, 2020

I’m not sure when spring ended and summer began. It’s been a weird year so far, to put it mildly. But here we are in northern Virginia facing 90+ degree days, finding ways to venture outdoors, and planning, canceling and re-planning (hopefully not re-canceling) beach vacations. So what better time to share some of my […]

Million Dollar Spaghetti

by Angela on April 29, 2020

In the middle of a world pandemic, the need for comfort foods (and comfort leggings, comfort naps, comfort chocolate…) is strong. Today I was definitely feeling the need for comfort food, so queue the baked spaghetti. There are a lot of “Million Dollar Spaghetti” recipes, so I combined a couple based on ingredients I had […]

Snacks: Kale Chips

by Angela on February 23, 2020

My husband is on a kale chips kick so we’ve been making them a couple times a week. I’d like to say this has made us experts on making them, but in reality, we seem to burn every 4th or 5th batch. There is a FINE LINE between perfect kale chips and burnt, inedible kale […]

Anyone ever buy vegetables for a great recipe but then have to throw them out because you forgot about them sitting in your fridge? Yeah, me neither. So I may or may not have wasted at least one good container of shaved Brussels sprouts before finally making this yummy, healthy breakfast recipe. It was super […]
